to invest and the essential pillars of economic growth like education, workforce readiness, science, research and innovation. i believe there are significant savings that can be achieved in our health care system without compromising the quality of care, and in fact, improving the quality of care. and without slashing benefits that seniors have worked so hard for and earned. former secretary-treasurer he paul o'neill has estimated we can save $1 trillion per year without affecting health care outcomes by in acting smart, targeted health care delivery reforms. the institute of medicine estimated the number could be 750 billion dollars. no matter what the exact figure or proposal, these are impressive savings that would strengthen the nation's health- care system without shifting cost and burdens to seniors and states. these have the added benefit of improving quality, -- quality outcomes within the health-care system. so before we continue to obsessively but benefits on the table, i would hope to begin the dialogue about finding solutions that produce health-care cost savings. i am c

of the great social science mysteries of the past 20 years is why is crime down so much. here in new york it's most dramatic but all over the country it's been going down. the other thing is dna evidence in the exonerations because of dna and the tremendous work the innocence project and other lawyers have done to show how imperfect our legal system is. that translates directly into jurors saying, you know, we're just not sure enough to impose the death penalty as much as we have in the past. and you take those two things, just fewer murders to prosecute and more reluctant jurors and you have a really dramatic change in how the public -- in how death penalty is used. >> do you think that continues? >> it seems to me that it depends on the types of crime that you're talking about. if you're talking about a sandy hook or situation where there's mass murderer, children involved, terrorist inspired activity, my guess is that you'll continue to see pretty strong support. even not that our legal system should reflect public opinion but obviously people still a ma yoert of americans still do believ

kind, that is all occurring at the intersections of markets and sciences. and the united states, the course -- because of his entrepreneurial system, because of what it teaches in the schools, specially universities, because of the ways kids grow up in the system, to look at opportunity, not a problem. to go at the answer, to work out the how to make the path were great, how to reduce the human footprint on the planet -- these are the things that make united states the attractive part of the work to invest in, because you can do it here. 70% of all the dow r&d in united states is done in the united states. right now the united states is unbeatable for that. second, the value added on resources, how is putting its money where its mouth is. we're putting 5 billion dollars against the national gas advantage that was talked about. we are putting thousands of jobs at work. this will create up to 2 million jobs in the next several years. a lot of that will be exporting brains and of course a little bit of iran. >> thank you, andrew.

. hire more teachers in math and science and help more kids afford a college education. we can keep doling out corporate welfare, or we can invest in renewable energy that creates jobs and lowers carbon pollution. priorities, choices, that is what this is about. and the stakes for the middle class couldn't be higher. if we don't pick the right priorities now, make the right choices now, we could hinder growth and opportunity for decades and leave our children with something less. that includes the obsession with cutting just for the sake of cutting. that doesn't help our economy grow. it will hold us back. remember, our deficits are getting smaller, not bigger. on my watch their falling at the fastest pace in 60 years. that gives us room to fix our long-term debt problems without sticking it to young people or undermining our bedrock retirement and health security programs or cutting basic research that helps us grow. here is the bottom line. congress should pass a budget that cut things we don't need and closes wasteful tax loopholes that don't help create jobs so that we can free

, newshour science correspondent miles o'brien traveled to the netherlands for one answer. >> reporter: the netherlands. the name says it all. the lowlands. built on a swampy delta. much of the country lies below sea level. american tracey mets is an author and water management expert living in amsterdam. >> you really wonder why people settled here at all. this must have been such an uninhabitable inhospitable place. it's a very soggy delta. >> reporter: that's what these are for: windmills are essentially pumps. >> if the sails turn, the wheel will turn, this will start spinning and turn. >> reporter: a giant ark median screw lifts the water out of the flood plane. peter paul clap wick is a miller near rotterdam. >> in 1450 when they were introduced, this enabled us to live in areas where before we couldn't live. >> reporter: i then, of course, there are the dikes or levees. massive walls usually made of earth built to hold back floodwaters. >> so really that's what the dutch have been doing for a long long time is defending their country from the water and defending also implies the
! hey lady, that's diesel! i know. ♪ ♪ >>> from science fiction of the 1990s to women's rights of the 1890s, here are today's top lines. don't be cheeky. >> conservatives think that liberals are dumb. but liberals think that conservatives are evil. >> in the movie "gattaca," in the not too distant, eugenics is common -- >> that line appears almost verbatim in the wikipedia entry on "got at that". >> plays a primary role. >> dna plays the primary role in determining social class. hey, that's what rand paul said. >> are you going to plagiarize the whole thing for us? do you have any thoughts of your own on this matter? >> vincent freeman is conceived the old fashioned way. >> my name is vincent, vincent anton freeman, and a faith birth or whatever you want to call it. >> genetic discrimination. >> vincent faces genetic discrimination and prejudice, a borrowed ladder. >> in your lifetime, much of your potential, or maybe lack thereof, will be known simply by swabbing the inside of your cheek. >> won't be cheeky. >> imagine a world where there is no interview, they take a swab of y
to distance themselves from the science of killing each other. as ohio seeks alternatives they could set up for legal and moral roadblocks. joining me, co-host of the cycle. states like ohio turn to other types of drugs called compounding pharmacies not regulated by fda. we have missouri one of the latest to cancel execution planned on using propofol but found there would be legal problems. explain questions around the country. >> one of the big problems is there are rules against using humans as test subjects. even though they have been set up for capital punishment in the legal process doesn't mean we can treat them for guinea pigs for punishment, execution that's never been tried before with drugs. you can sue for cruel and unusual punishment. have you a claim if this is a drug cocktail that's never been used to execute anyone. >> we have 32 states that use lethal injection as primary form of capital punishment. so are there any states ruling out using the drugs now and going back to older forms and other options for going through with the death penalty. >> basically several states like
've done. you've sort of taken the experience of it and maybe the science of it and cut around the media and gone directly to the public with it. why was that important to you? what do you want people to get out of that? >> for me, the ultimate reality tv was the first moon landing. if you think about it, a billion people worldwide were invited in to watch something unscripted, live, see how it goes, whatever they say, whatever happens, happens. and it was hugely effective for the same reasons that social media is effective today. if you show people honestly what's happening, if you invite them in, you don't force them to watch, you don't yell at them, just say, come see what's happening. that's what we did on board our time on space station. you can come look if you like. as a result, millions of people got to see what it's really like living in space, not just the science and the experiments, but just people up there living, doing things, brushing our fooefooet teeth, making music. >> you gave a quote to "usa today" about what it was like to do a space walk. you said, in one hand, you'
were a christian science and you led a corporation -- if you were christian scientist and you led a corporation, you could insist that your employees get health coverage that covers nothing? >> yeah. i mean, i think it's quite clear that the slippery slope that says that if the corporations owners, assuming that there's all of the owners are in perfect religious alignment themselves but if their religious views can sort of be imported on to this corporation and then ripple down to effect decisions about everyone who works for the corporation regardless of their religious conscience preferences, then, yeah, i think the slippery slope goes exactly the way that you pause it. and one of the things that's so strange about the janice rogers brown opinion that comes out of d.c. today is that it's almost just a given to her that corporations can have -- can be effectively people under the religious freedom act that is being invoked here. so it's almost as though, well, if they had speech rights, i guess they can have a religious conscience too. and we can talk about it like it's wacky, bu
